We know what’s going through your mind reading that title.
That you don’t need guidance on what to wear on a golf course. After all, a stylish golf attire is just but a confused world of pleated shirts, mismatched patterns, and dodgy hats.
Sure, maybe in the 1980s.
Today, it’s difficult to find a sport that gives you as much freedom of fashion expression as golf. But that doesn’t mean that you can wear your bright and fancy costumes out on the golf course. There are limits.
Here’s a head to toe guide for the best golf apparel that will help you glide through even the most restrictive golf clubhouse dressing codes.
Best Golf Shoes This Year
Spikes and shoelaces have been must-haves for golf shoes for quite some time now.
However, newer models are changing the game. Instead of the traditional laces, some crafty manufacturers have opted for disc-closure systems that snugly secure the shoe around your feet.
As for the spikes, newer types of golfing shoes are adopting more sophisticated traction elements that are specific to foot motion, hence improving your interaction with the turf.
Still skeptical? Consider these awesome golf shoes:
1. Adidas PowerBand Boa Boost
This shoe provides you with the ultimate comfort when walking and swinging all thanks to its midsole foam. The no-lace system ensures that you find your best fit easily.
2. Adidas Adipower Sports Boost 3
The upper textile keeps the shoe light. To improve durability and stability, the Boost 3 has some parts made with top-of-the-line polyurethane.
3. Adidas Adipower Bounce
This shoe features six spikes, blended masterfully with traction elements and low profile cleats to provide you with a great grip.
4. Adidas Cross Kit Boost
This shoe was built with one thing in mind – stability.
The heel counter locks your heel and arch, while the extra pieces from both sides of your heel form a saddle to offer your feet the ultimate comfort on the golf course.
5. Adidas Tour 360 Boost
For the Tour 360, there is a gap between the outsole and the rest of the sole to allow the heel and the forefoot to move freely while maintaining complete contact with the ground.
Best Golf Shirts This Year
1. Adidas ClimaCool UPF Long-Sleeved Polo
Whether it’s hot or cold on the golf course, there is a pretty good chance you will break some sweat. But with this ClimaCool Polo, you don’t have to worry about excessive sweating.
The fabric keeps your body dry, while the mesh ventilation ensures maximum breathability, hence keeping you dry throughout your golfing experience. The shirt’s UPF sun protection is another key highlight that’s designed to keep the sun away and make you stay cool.
2. Under Armour Playoff Long-Sleeved Polo
The shirt features everything needed for comfort on the course. Its Moisture Transport System keeps you cool and dry, while the stretch fabric offers you maximum flexibility.
It also comes with a UPF 30+ sun protection.
3. Nike Long-Sleeved Dri-Fit Micro Pique Polo
Stylish on and off the golf course, this Polo boasts of moisture wicking capabilities that keep you dry and fresh. Its fine fabric will also allow you to move freely while playing your game.
Best Men's Golf Pants This Year
Choosing your golf pants should be centered on structure and comfort. Ideally, you should pick pants that fit you properly around your waist. They should also fall all the way to the top of your shoes.
If you are not sure of the size, the general rule is to choose longer pants since hemming is now a trend on the golf courses. Do not forget about style and performance.
Taking all the above considerations into account, the best choice for golf pants this year would be the Izod’s XFG.
It features a button and zipper closure method, two front and rear pockets, as well as great breathability. It is made from polyester which guarantees you maximum comfort and easy washing.
Golf Knickers are Back in 2018
For those who treasure the old-school golf attire, knickers are the way to go.
They come in different bright colors, which could be a useful strategy on the course if you have a gut.
Prominent golfers who wear bright knickers admit that golf knickers help draw focus from their guts.
Knickers often come in loose fitting designs which will offer you a more extensive range of mobility, which is necessary when making that perfect shot. Even better is the fact that they are made of absorbent materials that wick moisture away, leaving you all cool and dry regardless of how tough the game might be.
So there you have it, your ultimate fashion guide to the golf course.
